Invalid reference to Property on Form/Report

I have a form containing Mainform w/Subform w/subform2.  On Subform2, has a combo which rowsource changes upon selection of a Option value.  I also need to set the rowsource of the combo on Load  (default value = ALL) of the Mainform from the swtichboard.  For some reason the code errors on load of the Mainform - I am setting the defalutvalue of the Option (frmeViews_click) = 1 ("ALL")  - to update the Rowsource for the combo on Subform2, however, continue thru the error and you make another selection on the frmeViews, including the "ALL", the code runs successfully.  

What can prevent the code from running on the load of the Mainform, but work when the form is active?  See the setting of the Sub2, field SparesXdcrNo.rowsource - this is where the code breaks on load of the form.

  Forms![frmXdcr_MeasNo_Assign]![SUB1].Form![Sub2].Form![SparesXdcrNo].RowSource = strSQL & " " & strWhere & " " & strSQL1"

First, I could find no reference to "Pilot's Column" in the code you posted.
Can you state what line the error occured on?

This leads me to belive that this might be an expression in a Table or query.

Check and run all the queries associated with this code, to see where the error might be.

Try:

Forms![frmXdcr_MeasNo_Assign]![SUB1].Form![Sub2].Form![SparesXdcrNo].Recordsource = strSQL & " " & strWhere & " " & strSQL1"

thanks for the suggestion however, the datasource for the combo should be RowSource not recordSource.

I decided to by pass the error msg- since the code is working in spite of the error msg.

frmeXdcrSort_Click_Error:
If Err.Number = 2455 Then
    Exit Sub
Else: MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & _
    ") in procedure frmeXdcrSort_Click of VBA Document Form_frmXdcr_MeasNo_Assign"
End If

"thanks for the suggestion however, the datasource for the combo should be RowSource not recordSource."

Sorry it is hard to tell what your objects are based on the names.

So your solution is to simply ignore the error rather than to find its cause and fix it?

Bypassing the error is only a good idea if you know what the error is and why it occurs.
This means that you may have to add this "Bypass" code to every sub where the error occurs.
This means that you may be bypassing the error in a situation that may wreak havoc on your database, and you might not know, or when you do find out, it may be difficult to fix.

But I leave these issue to you.

I am still trying to figure out what causing this problem - however, for now this is the solution -  do you have nay other ideas what can cause this issue?

Jeffrey CoachmanMIS LiasonCommented:
Well without delving deep into the inner workings of your database, this will be difficult to even guess at.
(For me at least)

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that a lot of the times, the Subforms events fire before the main forms events.

It's just that I have been bitten may times by attempts to bypass errors.
